Note:Remember, gutting your cat is illegal.
BUT, if you do, you will see a faster spool and alittle more HP.
Remember to wear a particle mask and eye protection. The dust from the Cat material is very harmful to your lungs and eyes.
Ultimately, the best solution is a new catless exhaust system-from the turbo to exhaust tip exit.

If you don't want to run without a cati, get yourself some acetone cut the cat off the pipe clog one end pour the acetone in and slosh it around for a bit, tip it like a rain stick. pour it out on a stump or something, your cat should now be carbon and oil free.
